Yes, the schools have certainly failed our kids and our communities. Add it all up and yes, the schools have failed our country.
It's "funny" that the de-fund the police movement is happening. But, the "de-fund" the schools movement, i.e. school vouchers to send your kid where you wanted with your money, could never, ever get off the ground.
Now, it's GLARING. All the "conservatives" who want to be re-elected this fall. Where are they? Why aren't we hearing from them? And, over the past decade, why haven't we heard from them? The liberal dems have served their voters well! Not the country, but, certainly they have served their voters. Where oh where is any conservative representation? Just claiming credit for slowing down anarchist democrats is certainly NOT sufficient.
